    Good News Update

    Club members will be able to access Common Point Outdoor Range
    without residents permits.

    further west to mile point 68, or just before Noel's Draw Lane.
    Noel's Draw Lane is not included in the closure area.

    The fine print: Permits ARE required for all travel on US 34 to/from Loveland.
